What are the pros? Easy to start

What are the cons? Flavor, yield, growth rate

Review:

These cucumbers did not perform well for us. They were really slow growing, slow to bloom, flavor was very bitter, yields were poor, and a lot of the cucumbers turned yellow before ripening. We tried watering more to lower the bitterness, then we had more cucumbers turning yellow, and no change to the bitterness, watered less, no change to the flavor. Would not grow again.

What are the pros? picture looks tasty

What are the cons? never grew past seedling stage

Review:

Being in Boston, I thought I'd give these babies a try. Now I don't see a zone listed on the package, but these never really grew. I tried seeds inside then transplanted. Tried planting directly in the garden. Tried planting in a container on the porch. No matter how I tried, the seeds would sprout, get a bout 4-6 inches tall with main leaves growing out. Then just stop. Would never get bigger, then just kind of died. Are these not meant for Zone 5?? I can't think of what else could be growing wrong here.

What are the pros? Great pickling cucumber

What are the cons? none

Review:

This is my second attempt at growing this cucumber. Finally, success! I planted these directly in the garden and trellised them. I believe the key to my success this year was putting them on a fertilizer schedule every three weeks and making sure they got lots of water. It's been a very wet season this year and that has helped tremendously. I've pickled several jars of cucumbers already, and the vines are still growing and full of new fruit. Great little cucumber!

What are the pros? So unbelievably prolific

What are the cons? None

Review:

Amazing producer! Eight plants produced close to 7 gallons of pickles. I planted the cukes next to an 8 ft, lattice garden fence (late- a few weeks after the frost date), and the vines went over the top of the fence and in some cases 2 feet down the other side. I made salads, picked spears & Hbg. dills, & even pickled some with hot peppers & garlic. Produced so much that I can skip planting cukes this year. The cucumbers do hide behind the big leaves, so you must move leaves to find them all. Toward the end of the season, it looked like There was some powdery mildew on the leaves, but this did not hurt the yield or the flavor.

Delicious but diseaseprone
Easy to Grow 4.0
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? Perfectly sized for canning

What are the cons? Not disease resistant

Review:

Great-tasting cuke, crunchiest of any I have grown. Plants were manageable size. They held out a few weeks longer than my Lemon Cucumber plants (always first to get disease), but attracted lots of cucumber beetles and succumbed to powdery mildew. Not a keeper for my humid region.
